This is a place where generations of families return to. I loved it as a kid and then loved bringing my children there and now bringing my grandson it never disappoints. Always a fun time. We never drive by without at least stopping to take a peek at the bears.

A great family attraction! Lots of fun for kids and adults that like to bring out the kid in them! They have bear shows, that are a lot of fun, the train ride where you are being chased by the wolfman, Merlin's Mystical Mansion where you feel like you are being turned upside down, and also Tuttles Rustic House where...

Not being from New England, I was told that I should visit Clark's Trading Post when I went to New Hampshire. I suppose it had a few novelties, such as the Bears and museums; however, most attractions were very corny and child oriented. I suppose I am glad I can say that I have now been to Clark's Trading Post...... More

I have heard of the Clark's bear shows since I was a kid. We finally visited last summer. I walked in with somewhat of an attitude! - and a concern for the treatment of these bears that do tricks. It was obvious to me from the start of the show, the absolute love and concern this family has for these... More

I know the park on a whole is a nice adventure for the family. But the trading post on it's own is basically just a tourist magnet, which of course, what it is meant to be. the staff was very nice but the place was way too crowded to enjoy.

Our group of 57 train enthusiasts stopped at Clark's for an afternoon. We were met by Anne, a member of the Clark family. She came aboard our bus, welcomed everyone, and told us a bit about the Park. The Clark family designed and built most of the buildings. The train station from a shut down park in New York -... More

Main building was closed but got to see the bears! There still is a scenic train that leaves from that lot. It was fun to sit and watch the bears and see people reactions to seeing the bears.

We enjoy riding on the old steam locomotive. It is like stepping back in time to watch the engine operate. We also enjoy watching the bear shows and strolling around the grounds.

We had been to some great country stores in VT, MA and NH. We were expecting to see some unique, funny, interesting and well-crafted merchandise. Instead we walked into a shop that was full of things no one should buy, nothing original and just generally creepy. The trained bear show was something that the humane society should put an end...
